    Good Job with lots of perks and benefits.

    Not enough staff for all the work.

    Advice to Management

    please dont hire people just to have workers. Stop putting extra work on your best workers and giving the weaker workers the easiest tasks for the same pay.

    I worked at Baptist Memorial Hospital - Desoto full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pretty laid back most of them time. Decent pay and tolerable doctors!

    Cons

    Lack of communication between managment and staff.. honest communication anyway. Higher managment makes it very clear during quarterly meetings that money is the top priority. It’s kinda sad.

    I worked at Baptist Memorial Hospital - Desoto part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly and welcoming environment. Opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company seems to value money over its employees. Took away Christmas bonus ($15 gift card), ignored a lot of employee concerns.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to value the employees more. You would have people more invested in the company and a happier workforce, which would translate into better patient reviews.

    I have been working at Baptist Memorial Hospital - Desoto for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is great team work among employees within each unit. From an employee perspective, the focus is on good outcomes and patient care.

    Cons

    The Baptist company does not seem to cherish its greatest asset- the employees (particularly the nurses). Not doing this portrays a lack of compassion to the patients, poor patient safety focus, and causes patient care to be in serious jeopardy.

    Advice to Management

    Implement retention bonuses for employees who are there and work diligently, until they are physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausted everyday, to help pull you through this major valley! Incentives, such as removal of points from an employee's file, offering cafeteria lunch vouchers, or simply surprising staff with Sonic milkshakes, would go a long way in improving morale and show that you care what we are going...
